All library leaders are charged with presenting the library's mission, objectives and performance measures to their funding agencies - be it county, district or consortium. These larger administrative units often encompass numerous cities and townships. And while we present ourselves strongly to our larger parent organizations, we may be missing opportunities by not presenting to smaller, local city / township governments that fall within our service area. By providing regular updates to the staff and elected officials of these smaller communities, libraries are: "¢ Opening new communication channels for reaching potential customers "¢ Aligning service delivery for maximum congruency / relevancy to local stakeholders' priorities "¢ Demonstrating the value and utility of library services to an even larger audience This session will provide recommendations for establishing contact with local governments "“ as well as suggestions, tips and direction for creating effective presentations to share with these key local stakeholders.
